Formula 1 Young Driver Test (Yas Marina, November 16th)

The first day of the two-day young driver test has been run at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit, with Red Bull reserve driver, Daniel Ricciardo coming out on top. 

It can be difficult to gleam any real information from these tests, as the teams will be running various different programmes for their respective driver; however it does give the young Australian early bragging rights.  Tomorrow Gary Paffett will be taking the Mclaren seat from Oliver Turvey; while at Force India and Sauber, Yelmer Buurman and Sergio Perez step into their respective seats.
Of the runners, Pastor Maldonado completed the most laps (108), while Paul di Resta, Jerome d’Ambrosio and Rio Haryanto all managing less than 40 tours of the course.
The young drivers test continues tomorrow.
